Walk Raises Funds for Hydrocephalus Association

Organizer Paula Keyser takes the lead in the fourth annual walk to promote awareness of hydrocephalus Saturday at Largo Central Park. Concerned citizens joined friends and family members of those living with hydrocephalus for the event, which was also a fund raiser for the Hydrocephalus Association. Keyser's son Jeremy, 7, was born with the serious chronic neurological medical condition known as hydrocephalus, which is an accumulation of fluid in the brain. It affects an estimated one million Americans of all ages. Jill Horn was co-organizer of the Hydrocephalus Association Walk, which also included a silent auction and picnic.
Some of the participants in the 4th Annual Hydrocephalus Association Walk gather for a photo prior to the start of Saturday's event at Largo Central Park. They include children and adults with hydrocephalus, their friends and family members. The State of Florida recently adopted House Resolution 2003, naming September 2008 as Hydrocephalus Awareness Month.
